In response to the recent guidance from the Government, Public Health England and subsequent advice from Swim England with regards to COVID-19, we have now taken steps to cancel our April Fool Gala, which was due to be held at the John Charles Centre, Leeds on 28/29 March 2020. I know you will share in our disappointment in making this decision but we must ensure the safety and wellbeing of all swimmers, coaches, volunteers and parents.
RDASC will be organising a full refund to Clubs for all swims and poolside passes. All refunds will be paid directly to the swimmer’s affiliated Club, followed by a confirmation email to the Club’s Competitions Secretary.
Where multiple paper entries have been received from Clubs, we also intend to make a single BACS payment transfer directly to the Club and ask that the Club reimburse their swimmers accordingly.
Can I ask that each recipient of this email reply with confirmation of their Club’s bank details so as to ensure reimbursements are made to the current bank account.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing to take part in our April Fool Gala, and also for your continued support.
